Lexington Police say in the last two months, there have been dozens of theft cases in the Waller, Maxwell and Euclid area, including dozens of victims living in 20 different homes. Now these girls wants others living nearby to be more careful.

"You don't want to be there the next day thinking I wish I would have locked the window or the door. My advice is to be very, very careful."
